Indian Giant Squirrel at Tirumala

During our peregrinations at Tirumala we visited Sri Vari Padam and chanced upon a pair of Indian Giant Squirrels. I was very fortunate to have been in a position to click some pictures of this rare sighting. The squirrel also didn't mind me clicking and were languorously perched on the branches of a tree.
